We continue to get a lot of questions about compatibility with iPhone X. I want to set the record straight with this post, and hopefully answer any questions you may have. Yes, the iPhone X works excellently with the Gamevice. It is fully compatible and makes for an amazing gameplay experience with iPhone X today.
Before the iPhone X was released, we didn’t know how the iPhone X’s new shape would fit within the design of the Gamevice. We couldn’t promise compatibility before trying things ourselves. As soon as the iPhone X hit stores, we tested it with Gamevice. As we’d hoped, the iPhone X works perfectly with the Gamevice. It is not significantly longer than the iPhone 8, or thicker than the iPhone 8 Plus. As a result, Gamevice was already designed to work within the dimensions of the iPhone X.
Treat your iPhone X with Gamevice the way you’d treat any non-plus-sized iPhone. Set the Gamevice’s adjustable bridge to its most compact setting. Then plug your iPhone into the Lightning port side of the Gamevice. Then pull the left half of the Gamevice in the opposite direction, until there is enough room to fit the iPhone. Then push your iPhone into the opening, release the Gamevice, and you’re good to go. It’ll be a slightly tighter fit than it would be with a standard iPhone, but it still works great.
Once you’ve connected your iPhone X to your Gamevice, everything works as well as you’d hope. The Gamevice covers about a two millimeters of the corners of the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge display – certainly not enough to obscure anything important in any game I’ve ever seen, and in fact won’t show up at all for any game not specifically optimized for full-screen. None of the iPhone X’s sensors are obscured by the Gamevice in any way – Face ID works perfectly, the stereo speakers sound great, and there’s plenty of room to swipe to go home.
If you’ve been holding out on grabbing a Gamevice out of concerns that it won’t work properly on your iPhone X, don’t worry about it – this is is a first-class gaming experience. It’s how I usually game, myself, and I can recommend it without hesitation.
